Yesterday (January 30, 2007, +8:00 GMT), I ran the update manager (I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy
) and had an error (of some sort). A lot
of the following line appeared when I expanded the terminal panel of the update manager:
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-386
And then, it ended with:
sudo: can't open /etc/sudoers: Too many open files in system
So, I decided to force quit the update manager and then I opened the Synaptic Package Manager to see if there is any error. It prompted me to manually run the following command to fix the problem because I interrupted the dpkg during the update:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
So, I did it in the terminal, but the same results (repeating "update-initramfs..." line, eventually ending with the "can't open..." line.
Now, I restarted my computer. I can't run my latest kernel (2.6.17-10-386), so I have to use my previous one (2.6.15-23-386). The following error is shown on start-up when I choose the 2.6.17-10-386 kernel (I retyped it. I just wrote it down on a piece of paper):
[17179573.008000] RAMDISK: Ran out of compressed data
[17179573.008000] invalid compressed format (err=1)
[17179573.008000] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Can anyone address this?
